The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, which produces some of the most attended auto shows in America, has its headquarters in Pleasanton, California on the 10th floor of Fort Worth overlooking the Texas Motor Speedway. We have moved to the new Lone Star Tower.

Goodguys hosts 15 to 22 multi-day events across the country, attracting approximately 50,000 show cars and 500,000 spectators each year. His 25th event the group has hosted at his Texas Motor speedway will take place this year. As the association continues to expand its footprint in the United States, it has moved away from his 20-year home on the West Coast to become more centrally located.

“Bittersweet,” said Goodguys COO Andrew Ebell. “Time spent in Pleasanton signified the growth of a dream born out of the Meadors family living room in the 1980s, and that period will always be part of the Goodguys legacy. As we grow into functions, we are able to operate in a more central location in the central United States, along with a nationwide member base and event series. I am proud to call it my hometown.”

The association’s first event as a TMS tenet will be the Summit Racing Lone Star Nationals, September 16-18 at Texas Motor Speedway.
